When it feels like foundation is caked on your face, you feel gross and that your pores are clogging with every second you keep it on. That thick foundation almost feels like it’s filled with chemicals as you’re applying it to your face. It sometimes even has a vaguely synthetic smell. Foundation sits on the top layer of your skin all day. If you’re going to be wearing face make-up all day, you might as well look for a more natural alternative. There are good foundations that aren’t made up of chemical names that you can’t even try to pronounce. They work just as well as those big brand-name powders and liquids. 

We found the best natural foundations that are chemical-free. These foundations use ingredients that are often organic, and they don’t include parabens, animal products, gluten or other products that could secretly harm you or your skin. Just because they’re natural doesn’t mean that you won’t get good, light-weight coverage. These foundations target your problem areas, smooth out fine lines and give your face a dewy, natural look. It enhances your features rather than smothering them in a cake-y liquid.
